3D toothbrush or pencil holder?

Thinking of printing one of these oversized as a pencil holder. It's a model of the N Frame cylinder I did about 20 years ago.

    I'll make the .stl file for it available to anyone that wants it for free. It may need to be sized before printing but other than that it should be good. Most 3D printers can use it. I have a buddy printing the first one soon. Will keep you guys apprised.

    The only downside is I modeled it accurately so the bottom may need to be shaved down to sit flat.

    Not to down play the effort and talent of designing it. 

    But there’s a bunch of free plans for the same thing on Thingiverse.

    Apparently it's in review. *rolling eyes*

    There is that, but I just looked in Amazon and searched “gun cylinder pen holder”.  There are several for sale for $14-19.  They are mostly metal but most don’t really look much like real cylinders.  There’s also the need for a 3D printer part of the exercise...

    My local library has them for free use. It's more an exercise in what I can do.
